Do you have the main lock out switch turned on at the driver's master control?

Lock out switch has no effect either way.

Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 6 years ago
just to be clear the driver's switch won't move any windows but the driver's window?

Will the buttons on each door move the windows at all?

no, no buttons on any doors operate any windows except the driver's window from the driver's door

Okay good that helps me pin it down a little better.

Let's try reseting the van completely and see if that fixes the issue. I don't want to recommend parts replacement for a control unit issue. Sometimes the control unit just loses it's memory. Pop the hood and remove the negative then the positive battery cable and touch them together. This will clear everything on the van back to new factory setting. What you are doing is discharging the capacitors inside the control units. You have to hold the battery cables together for a couple minutes, I usually use a jumper wire. As long as they are not attached to the battery you won't hurt anything. Once you have done the reset attach the positive then negative cables back on the battery and turn on the van. Let it run 10 mins. without the A/C on and don't touch the gas pedal just let it idle so it can let it's idle speed.
Try the windows after this. If it was a control unit fluke they should work again. (hopefully this is it)

the battery cable disconnect did not work

Most likely the switch or the driver's door multiplex is faulty. You'll need to test them to be sure though. Do you have a meter ?

no
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 6 years ago

It's going to be hard to diagnose without a way to check those parts above. Let me see if I can find a self diagnostic option. Give me a little time to look it up.

Several forums suggest that the multiplex can get wet and short out ....will see if it is wet under there
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 6 years ago

Has it been wet inside the van?

Most of the time when I see this it's got a bad seal on the inside door panel or if you open the door you'll see a rubber seal for the wiring and that's ripped or off the door. It's like a grommet. Pull out the gromment a little and check for water there.

it is dry
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 6 years ago

Try this and tell me what happens,

Key Cylinder Operation

With the key inserted in the driver's door key cylinder, turn the key in either direction and release it, turn it a second time and hold it within 10 seconds to operate the windows (clockwise to open, counterclockwise to close). The windows stop moving when the key is released. The auto reverse operation is not active when closing the windows with the key cylinder. The key cylinder switch will not activate until the key is removed from the ignition and the driver's door is opened. Opening the driver's door cancels the key off timer.

Only the driver's window operates...I already tried this
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 6 years ago
Okay I'm just trying to see if it will operate everything or not. It's critical to seeing what the control unit is doing.

What next?
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 6 years ago

Try this too,

Keyless Operation

By pressing the UNLOCK button of the keyless transmitter a second time and hold within 10 seconds, the windows open. The windows stop moving when the UNLOCK button is released. The windows do not close with the LOCK button. The keyless window operation with the remotes will not work until the key has been removed from the ignition, and the driver's door has been opened. This cancels the key off timer.

The window opens partially then stops....the same thing happens with the double key thing...have to repete process to open and close completely
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 6 years ago

I'm looking at the wiring diagram and operation sheet now.

Ask Your Own Honda Question
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
ok
Mechanic for Honda: Kyle N., Honda Master Tech replied 6 years ago

I think the problem is most likely the Driver's master switch on the door. On your van the multiplex for the door is integrated into the switch. The problem could be that main button stuck in the on position or it could be that the door multiplex isn't sending voltage to the other doors.

You would have to test further to be able to tell with a meter but most likely that's the problem based on the info I have and the wiring diagram.

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA
